Breakfast. Departure in 4X4 vehicle from Arusha and en route to Tarangire. Approximately 3 hours’ journey (itinerary details and travel times are subject to road conditions). Discovery of the Tarangire National Park. Its name would come from the Tarangire River which crosses it from south to north. With a surface area of 2 600 Km², it presents an astonishing diversity of vegetation (sausage trees, tortellis acacias...) but it is especially famous for the immense baobabs that dot its rocky slopes. The park also offers a very diverse fauna. Many birds have been identified. Also if the park is mainly known for hosting one of the largest concentrations of elephants in Africa, it also houses many other residents. Impalas, buffalos, cape elands, kudus and damsons live there. Lions, leopards and cheetahs are also present but are more difficult to see because of the tall grass.

DAY 3 NGORONGORO

Breakfast. Discovery of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Its name comes from the warriors of the tribe formerly settled in the crater: the Likorongoros (name deformed into Ngorongoro by the German settlers). Theater of all the scenes of wildlife, Ngorongoro offers a great diversity of environments: swamps, grasslands, forests, streams, savannahs ... The crater itself covers nearly 260 km2. Classified as a world heritage site, it is in fact a caldera, a gigantic ancient volcano, which collapsed nearly 2.5 million years ago covering the surrounding area with ash. During the descent that will lead you there, you will enjoy a spectacular panorama of the interior of the crater. You will find the greatest density of animals in Africa. There are some 20,000 animals, including nearly 55 species of mammals: ostriches, Kori bustards, lesser flamingos, crowned cranes, zebras, gazelles, warthogs, wildebeests, hartebeests ... all are present. Elands, jackals, black rhinos, and some servals are also among the main tenants. Ngorongoro is also home to many predators such as hyenas, lions, and leopards. If you have not yet encountered a lion on your safari, Ngorongoro will not disappoint you as it has the highest density of this predator in the world. Picnic lunch in the crater and continuation of the safari in the afternoon. Dinner at the lodge.

DAY 4 NGORONGORO - MANYARA

Breakfast. Depart Ngorongoro and drive to Manyara. Approximately 2 hours drive (route details and travel time are subject to road conditions). Visit the village of Mto Wa Mbu, which borders Manyara National Park. The village is known for its famous rice and “red” banana plantations. The local population lives from agriculture and tourism. Local dinner. Enjoy a dinner in the heart of a banana plantation. Elaborated with sweet potatoes, meat in sauce, vegetables and local specialties such as ugali (a corn-based dish that can be assimilated to polenta) and sukuma wiki (spinach), this local lunch will be an opportunity for you to share a convivial moment in the simplicity and authenticity of Africa. Afternoon game drive in Manyara National Park. Sandwiched between the Rift Valley and the alkaline lake of the same name, Manyara National Park covers nearly 320 km2. Its name derives from the Maasai term “emanyara”, the name of a leaf found all around the lake and used by the inhabitants to cover their homes. The park also offers a very diverse fauna: giraffes, buffaloes, zebras, baboons, monkeys and elephants are all present. If you are lucky, you may even spot Manyara’s famous tree lions. Perched in the acacia trees to get a better view of their prey, these lions are the pride of the park. Dinner at the lodge.
